This compact 366-page volume contains more clinical information on the differential diagnosis of diarrhea than the standard medical textbooks but avoids the exhaustive detail of some gastrointestinal and infectious disease reference sources. The editor and nine additional contributors are well-qualified in their assigned areas.
A brief introduction sketches an approach to the patient with diarrhea and presents a short physiologically oriented classification. Subsequent chapters discuss the diagnosis of diarrhea due to infectious agents, regional enteritis and ulcerative colitis, enterotoxins and neoplasms, malabsorption, systemic and occult causes, pediatric conditions, and emotional disturbances. Laboratory procedures are described in detail in some sections.
